Google clone Gougou goes gaga

Gougou.com no more.

Gougou.com no more.

Chinese domain portal, Gougou.com, was shut down yesterday by the Chinese government; this time, for good.

The portal, which was made to look like a cheap version of Google, wasn’t just another search engine for the Chinese.

Gougou.com had been blocked in the past by countries outside of China, for being a repository of pirated material, such as software, music and other copyrighted work.

By closing Gougou.com down, the Chinese government aspires to showcase its compliance to international laws, regarding trademarks and copyrights.

It is not clear whether the domain name, which was registered in 2000, was confiscated as well.
